Ultimate Seasonal Playlist 2018

It’s time for my semi-annual review of my favorite seasonal music. I say seasonal because there are songs that crop up this time of year that have nothing to do with Christmas or Hanukkah or even winter but are still somehow associated with the season (I’m looking at you, “My Favorite Things”). Some of my old favorites still hold a spot on my Ultimate Playlist and some others are making their debut. If a song can be found in the WFPL’s hoopla digital library, I have noted that below.

Check out my collection on hoopla for these titles and more!
